. >>> president obama admits his new push for sweeping gun control will be a tough fight. the lines are being drawn today. where the -- steve? >> that's right. both parties could be unified in this one, jim, on both sides. the key to a win, though, in this fight over guns seems to be the middle. democrats from states where guns are popular. delmarva, western maryland, west virginia, west virginia, those lawmakers are getting pressure from both sides. the vice president kicked off the public biden/obama campaign for universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons. >> newtown has shocked the nation. the carnage on our streets is no longer able to be ignored. >> that's why we need a national approach. >> but key congressional democrats could oppose the is that. democratic laterer harry reid, who voted against 91994 assault weapons ban, said a new one can't pass congress. west virginia democratic senator joe manchin, after newtown, questioned the right to own assault weapons. now manchin says he's disappointed that the president did not recommend the creation of the national commission o

right now, look i disagree with barack obama's fiscal and economic policy. i have for four years and i reckon i'll disagree with it for a while longer. i'll tell you this. the guy goes out and gives this gun control, safety speech today. okay. you don't have to agree with everything. a very complex issue we're dealing with in this horrible heinous national tragedy. but already, joe, right away republicans, some of them are out there killing him. executive orders are no good. papa bush used executive orders on this very subject. you know what i'm saying. the gop has become the pessimistic party of dr. no not the solution party of let's get together and figure something out. we can do this. reban always said we can do this. right now the gop says we can't do anything except bash obama. >> great leaders figure out how to say yes. ronald reagan and i'll say it, i voted to impeach the guy, bill clinton. bill clinton would always figure out that when republicans said something he agreed with he would tell people. hey, you know that's a good idea. they are right. and i guess as a politician t

situation overseas. we begin with the most important issue facing this country right now, the issue that president obama made his agenda today. a little over one month since the brutal shooting at sandy hook. the president changed the rules on gun with the stroke of his pen. signing 23 executive actions he says will strengthen background checks and expand safety programs in schools. the president is also calling for action in increasingly gridlocked congress. >> the most important changes we can make depend on congressional action. ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. ask them if they support renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines. ask them what is more important, doing whatever it takes to get a a grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns, or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> joining me now is richard blumenthal of connecticut. he wants to target ammunition sales and require background checks on anyone who buys bu

in the sky, this is common talk on the right, his presidency and barack obama and some of his issues. what i'm surprised by, and i respect mark a lot, there's so much whining going on here coming from the right about barack obama now fighting hard for the things that he believes in. you guys thought he was a wimp. you guys didn't think he was going to fight for the the stuff he cared about and now that he's fighting, you're whining about it and that's a sign of a losing political party. >> megyn: go ahead, mark. >> i'm not whining about anything, unlike his immediate predecessors, barack obama is not interested in bipartisan. compare him to george bush and bill clinton. george bush reached across the aisle with ted kennedy for the the no child left behind and bill clinton reached out to republicans and worked with them to pass the north american free trade agreement over objection of majority of democrats. where are barack obama's bipartisan achievement and legislatures he passed working with republicans against democrats? not a single issue he stakes a claim against his own party for the go

snapshot from progressiv all right, dude! thanks! to the safe go the savings. >>> president obama will be sworn in for his second term as president this sunday, january 20th, and then sworn again the following day in a massive public ceremony at the nation's capitol. he was also sworn in twice in 2009 because the supreme court justice, john roberts, botched the whole oath of office. add them together and president obama ties fdr for most time taking the oath of office. a little trivia for you. she is set to join shepherd for monday's inauguration coverage, good to see you, amy. >> good to see you. >> given the deep political enmitt in washington, is the inauguration a bit of a charade? >> this is a particularly difficult year, not just in the way that second inaugurals are dull affairs and because president obama's first one was so exciting, that this is bound to be a snorer. but everyone has watched what happened with the fiscal cliff and our government is barely funking, lurching from one deadline to another, in a crisis we have to resolve. the parties are not speaking with each

foundation -- he supports america's right to bear arms. he joins us now live from las vegas. thank you for joining us. let's look at some of the proposals president barack obama has put through -- he wants everybody buying a gun to pass a more comprehensive background check. surely with background checks, that will limit guns falling into the wrong hands? >> i have no problem with background checks. the problem is the devil is in the details. barack obama and members of this party have ordered the proposals in the past -- they create a national registration system that is prohibited by law, and would put a gun shows out of business because it would hold people criminally liable for acts committed by people at the show. no one and their right mind would hold a gun show. >> so this is about money to you? >> it is not about money. it is about freedom and the right to buy a gun for self protection, even if you are buying it at a gun show. >> what do you make of what obama said in the proposal -- we were talking about background checks, but he also says he wants to introduce a ban on milita
